I'm Not Having What He's Having, I'm Having This-Grilled Salmon on a Bed of Wilted Spinach

Last night for dinner my husband was grilling his favorite steak, top sirloin, even though it's not on his good food list for him. You have to give in to your cravings once in awhile.  I haven't eaten red meat in 20 yrs.  I not a vegetarian, a vegan, or PETA proponent, I just feel better when I don't eat red meat. So... I had grilled salmon  on a bed of wilted spinach. Yum!  I marinated the salmon for about half an hour in low sodium Teriyaki sauce, garlic powder,  juice of 1 whole lime, and salt free Sunny Singapore Spice blend from The Spice House,  Sunny Singapore seasoning is a combination of many Eastern and Western spices

Here are the recipes

Marinade for Salmon.
I made this for 1 piece of salmon fillet.  Adjust the ingredients accordingly. depending on how much salmon you have.

1/4-1/3 cup of Teriyaki sauce  (I used low sodium)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Sunny Singapore seasoning or Chinese Five Spice

Combine all  marinade ingredients in bowl, stir,. and pour over salmon in a plastic bag.  Marinate for about 1/2 hour. Remove salmon from marinade. Grill over medium heat for about 6min. per side, until fish flakes.  Do not overcook.

Wilted Spinach

1-2 cups baby spinach
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a saute pan. Heat to simmer .  Add baby spinach and stir until spinach is coated and starts to wilt.  Pour on plate and place grilled salmon fillet on top. Pour juice of 1/4 lime over the spinach and salmon.  Bon Apetit!
